Paint.net 4.3 no longer appears in the "Open with" drop down list


Recommended Posts

I had a report of this during beta but I couldn't reproduce it

 

What type of image is this happening with? Is it all of them, or just some of them? (e.g., JPG? PNG? PDN? GIF?)

 

What version of Windows are you using?

Almost all types of image files are affected by this behavior. The typical image and graphic file extensions which are often found associated with Windows Paint (I'm using Windows 7) and other similar programs cannot be opened with Paint.Net by right-clicking the file and choosing "Open with" from the drop down menu. The exceptions are GIF, BMP and DIB. The uploaded image shows what is displayed when right-clicking of a JPG file. Paint.net is missing from the list.

If you open the Default Programs control panel (I think that's what it's called in Win7...), is there an entry for paint.net? What file types does it have listed? (screenshot plz)

I was able to reproduce this, and I figured out why it's happening. Easy fix, and I should be pushing out a 4.3.1 update fairly soon since this is a pretty important bug for Win7 users. Win10 is unaffected.
